Fisherman Rowin hardly catches enough fish to make ends meet. But when he meets a mysterious man at his regular fishing spot, his life seems to take a radical turn.
Being a young fisherman on Curaçao, Rowin has trouble keeping his head above water. Until one day he has a miraculous encounter with a mysterious figure. It gradually dawns on Rowin that he catches more fish owing to this man’s presence at the fishing spot. As the two get to know each other better, Rowin dares to open himself up to his past and learns to embrace his future. With this film, director Kevin Osepa sheds a new light on themes like post-colonialism and the Afro-Caribbean identity.
